Democratic Pollster Mark Penn: 84% of Americans Support Turning Undocumented Immigrants Over to Authorities
THE LEFT ONCE GAIN OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE … SANCTUARY CITY POLICIES OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
Democratic pollster Mark Penn stated during an interview with Hill.TV “Rising,” that 84% of Americans favor turning undocumented immigrants over to federal agents. Penn asked during polling, “Do you think notifying ICE would in fact increase crime because it would inhibit people from reporting crimes or does it decrease crimes because it takes criminals off the street?” According to Penn, the overwhelming majority said, “decrease.” This is in stark contrast with Democrats and Lefties who are calling for the end of ICE. Eighty-four percent of respondents is a lot more than just Trump voters and Independents. That would include many Democrats as well. But Democrats are openly calling for the end of ICE, which some think is insanity and a gift to the GOP. Ya think?

Prominent Democratic pollster Mark Penn said on Thursday that a vast majority of Americans don’t really support so-called sanctuary cities that shield immigrants in the country illegally from deportation.
Penn, who served as chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, revealed that 84 percent of Americans favor turning undocumented immigrants over to federal agents.
“I asked them, ‘Do you think notifying ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] would in fact increase crime because it would inhibit people from reporting crimes or does it decrease crimes because it takes criminals off the street,’ and they overwhelming said ‘decrease,’ ” Penn told Hill.TV “Rising.”
Penn said the response was strikingly “out of sync” with what the public might think about sanctuary cities. The broad term refers to cities that don’t fully cooperate with federal authorities when it comes to turning over people in the country illegally to immigration enforcement.
